Dr. Lisa M. Hinkle, DC, CACCP
Dr. Lisa Hinkle began her chiropractic career in Frederick, Maryland in 2006. She was born and raised in Silver Spring, Maryland. At the age of seventeen, after witnessing her mother’s success with chiropractic, she felt a strong connection with the philosophy of chiropractic and natural medicine, and was moved to share it with others.
In 2002, She graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Maryland Baltimore County with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and completion of all pre-medical coursework in preparation for professional school. In March 2006, Dr. Hinkle graduated summa cum laude from New York Chiropractic College with her Doctor of Chiropractic degree. She had the unique opportunity to complete her clinical experience at the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. In addition to treating active duty military personnel in the chiropractic clinic, she also rotated through various hospital departments including musculoskeletal and neurological radiology, orthopedics, neurology, and physical medicine and rehabilitation.
In February 2007, Dr. Hinkle opened Arise Chiropractic Wellness Center as the sole business owner. In addition to spinal adjusting, Dr. Hinkle is trained in Myofascial Release Technique and Craniosacral Therapy.
